HP DL585 G2 Not Booting.
Posted on 2013-12-22
Hoping someone can assist me.
I have a HP DL585G2 server. Last night presumably due to some electrical cause the server has stopped working.
It is giving a repeating long beep during post. It shows the internal fault light on.
Initially when I opened the machine to my memory PPM4 light was on as was the whole of the adjacent memory bank lights. 8 memory socket lights representing the front left side. My initial thought was that maybe it was the PPM. I did not have a spare so I swapped it with PPM3.
Initially there was no change. However subsequent reboots are now showing orange alerts on the whole of memory bank adjacent to PPM3 (front left side). I tried reseating the memory as some of them definitely were not locked in properly. This did not fix it. I then removed all of the memory from bank 3. On reboot all of Memory bank 4 lights were on.
There is also a POST code 42 shown. This seems to indicate a memory issue.
I am able to log into ILO but I have not found any alerts. I am on my way to pick up a spare machine so should have some spare if necessary. But really not sure what to start with.
